Let me begin by confessing that I am not a musician, nor am I in any way affiliated with the music industry. (Ok...I used to play the flute in my high school band and I own a VERY dusty guitar that I don't know how to play....but, somehow, I'm sure these two facts don't earn me any musician street cred.) I am merely a fan of almost all forms of music.
In this weekly blog, every Friday I will post a song that appropriately summarizes my adventures or random thoughts. My day job, as a marketing professional and business development director, requires a significant amount of travel. I am slogging through finishing my first novel. I also just officially hired the services of a professional matchmaker. (Intuitive Matchmaking) Life is most definitely in full swing for me and I have plenty of stories to tell!
So, in this my inaugural post, the first addition to my mix tape is:
"Kick Push" is about finding a positive means of escape from day-to-day troubles. I love the line "...freedom was better than breathing..." and the fact that the main character had to work hard at the skills needed to obtain his freedom. I also totally dig on the fact that his girl says, "I don't need to ride your's. I got mine right here." Translation: "WE can be together AND you don't have to carry ME." Skater girls rock!
I was born with a mild case of wanderlust, so I can relate to this need to roam free. My escapes were reading, music, and dancing. Since my family didn't have money for extensive travel, I researched the places I wanted to visit. China was at the top of my list. It was a real pleasure to finally visit Beijing in January 2010. (Paris, France is still on my list - though I have passed through Charles de Gaulle airport a few times, I haven't had the opportunity to stay in Paris.)
Sit back, relax, and listen to this mellow groove with a rich horn track, while plotting your next escape into serenity.
"So let's kick...then push...and coast."
